Good evening Byrd Family,
Dr. Seuss week is finally here! BES will celebrate one of our favorite authors all week long with many fun events. Tomorrow is Hat Day. Tuesday is Go Green Day. Wednesday is Mix-match Day. Thursday is Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss Day, and students can wear their favorite birthday shirt or hat. Friday is Dress for Success Day, so student will be dressed their best for spring picture day. We will be collecting newspapers and clean water bottles all week for our recycling drive. Tuesday students will participate in a book swap. Every student will take home a book to keep, but students are welcome to bring in used books to trade out for different books.
The Good News Club will meet after school on Monday, and the spring Chess Club will begin meeting on Tuesday.
This Friday is spring picture day. Also, students in the Reading Olympics program will be treated to a special breakfast hosted by team coaches on Friday morning.
Goochland County Public Schools has updated the requirements for all school volunteers who interact with students. Volunteers must go through a background check. This includes field trip chaperones. If you’ve been checked before, another check must be repeated every two years. More information about completing the background check process is posted on our school website under the Information tab or by clicking this link, and you can direct any questions to our office staff. Thank you for understanding that these new procedures are only in place to ensure the safety of our children.
Friday, March 10th is right around the corner! The PTA will host their annual PTA Dinner and Auction. Dinner is served at 6 and the auction begins at 7:00. Students brought home a flyer with more information and an advanced order form to reserve your dinner. This form is posted on the school website. Please return the form to reserve your dinner as soon as possible!
The PTA would like your feedback! A PTA satisfaction survey is available on our school website, and by clicking here. All answers are anonymous and your participation is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for reading, and have a great week!
